Gmelius alternative DragApp


Here’s how we think.

Gmelius has been around for a while. For years, they have focused on CRM features such as Email tracking or sequences, competing with known tools such as MixMax or Boomerang. More recently, they seem to be pivoting towards email collaboration, following tools such as Drag or Front.

Drag is different from day one. The founding team have one mission – Give email-focused teams, control of their work in one tool, one place and one way.

Our founding team is made up of people from MIT, successful SaaS founders with multi-million revenue. We are a Techstars company, backed by key people @ Google to deliver on our vision. We know how businesses need to be run and are building the tools to do it. 

Drag is also a remote-first team. We experience the team collaboration challenges first hand, every single day. So, long story short: if you’re looking for a product made by best team for the best teams – then you’re in the right place with Drag, the best Gmelius alternative.

We hope this helps…

P.S. Need more convincing?

The rest of this page is for you. We’ve brought together some great minds across customers, investors within Google, and our internal team to ask the question “How do we differentiate?”. Here are top answers from top minds to explain why Drag is the best Gmelius alternative.

The  TOP  reasons why companies use Drag vs. Gmelius


It’s not about rolling-out features

It’s about a clear vision. Companies suffer from product bloat, trying to serve every single customer. Drag is being built to serve a focused customer set with the clear mission to give email-focused teams, control of their work in one tool, one place and one way. (and when we speak, we’ll be honest if that’s not you). Our team is comprised by experienced small business owners, sharing the pain with our customers, navigating back and forth between different tools to run a business. We don’t want to build every feature to try and reach everyone. We want to exclusively build Drag to serve this pain.


Great minds helping deliver on Drag’s vision

There is a wider team making this happen. We are backed by Techstars and 40+ investors including on leadership roles @ Google. Drag is a spin-out of MIT and has a serious team of SaaS experts helping us every step of the way.


Grow your team, not your costs

We don’t plan to win by simply lowering prices. Our philosophy is truly different. Drag has no user / month prices. We believe teams should be able to control their work in one place, one tool, one way. Drag is the Gmelius alternative with flat price, regardless of your team size. Focus on growing your team, not your costs.


A business model focused on customer success

We are obsessively customer-centric. We understand the epic challenge of replacing many tools just one – Drag! It takes a hands-on approach led by humans (not bots) from the point you join to staff training, adding workflows across departments and change. We have built our business model to be available every step of the way.
